Volvo Cars is restarting production at its suburban Goteborg plant in Sweden on Monday after talks with trade unions.

The Swedish car maker had in recent weeks reviewed every single working station in the Torslanda plant, near Goteborg, โ€œfrom a health and safety perspective,โ€ adding that when โ€œsocial distancing is not possible, other protective measures have been put in place.โ€

Volvo Cars also plans to reopen a plant in Ghent, Belgium, on Monday but โ€œat reduced production output.โ€ Its South Carolina plant is anticipated to open May 11.
